Book Review: Playing a Bad Lie

I just got done reading the book Playing a Bad Lie by John K. This was an absolutely wonderful book that takes a look at the democratic party through the eyes of a golfer. The golfer is playing the game with his young son who expresses athe idea that he might want to be a democrat. The father uses the game of golf to show the boy what the democratic party, especially the way left liberal wing of it, is really like.
The book has excellent analogies and demonstrates the problems of the democratic party. It is simple and straight forward and the author expertly describes the democratic party using the game of golf as his tool.
I highly recommend this book to every conservative who wants an excellent primer for teaching their children the differences between the parties. I also highly recommend that the liberals out there read this book over and over so they can see how truly absurd their way of thinking really is.
Hats off to John K for an excellent, well written, thought provoking and insightful book!

Never Let Logic Get in the Way…

It is amazing that with all the experts coming out and stating that the documents produced by See BS are forgeries that See BS would still claim that they are real. Dan Rather has such a big ego and such a hatred for George Bush he would not admit that something was wrong if they threatened to remove his testicles (though he probably does not have any). There are so many problems with these documents that a red flag should have at least been raised and a more thorough investigation done. These documents would never make it as evidence in court yet See BS touts them as real. Now I don’t know if they are real or not. At least not 100%. There is no way for me to know without the man who supposedly wrote them coming back from the dead, or the person who forged them stepping up and admitting so. I do know that despite what that idiot Dan Rather would have us believe, the preponderance of evidence suggests that these documents were fabricated.
Unfortunately, the MSM will always get away with stuff like this so long as the intellectually deficient people, like those at this web site, are out there. They go about debunking the debunking and talk about logic blah blah blah. They do not use scientific methods and their argument is that typewriters did exist in the 70s that could produce such documents. I do not think this is the case, but suppose for a moment this is true. What are the odds that a National Guard unit would have had this state of the art equipment. I can tell you, that the Guard would not have had it. You can check my credentials here, but believe me when I tell you that the Guard is the last of the services to get anything. These would be out in business, not in an organization that met one weekend a month and 2 weeks a year.
Now, if we state that the typewriter existed and by some miracle the guard had it then how do we explain that one of the memos that was written referred to someone putting pressure on to sugar coat an evaluation despite the fact he had retired 18 months prior to the memo? How do we explain that handwriting experts, all except the See BS expert, agree the signatures are forgeries? How do we explain these memos being in a dead man’s private files for more than 20 years without his family knowing about them, them never being found and amazingly they appear just before a presidential election? How is it that See BS was the only news organization provided with these and they are the only one who went to bat with them and they are the only news organization vehemently defending their validity? And these are the discrepancies that exist if we assume there was a typewriter that could produce such a document and that the guard had one. Both of which are major assumptions.
I guess it is just the skeptic in me but if it walks like a duck…..
When all these so called internet experts are out there defending John Kerry and trying to show these memos are real, remember that the real experts, the ones who are not political hacks like at See BS, are the people who are saying these are not real.
While I am at it, let me put this critter to bed once and for all. A lot of pilots miss physicals. Sometimes they are performing duties that no longer require them to fly, or they are leaving the service, or a number of other reasons. Missing a physical does not make you a bad person. I can name a lot of pilots in the military who miss a physical and get grounded. They are not bad people or slackers. See previous item about credentials if you have any questions about my knowledge in this area.

What is Freedom of the Press?

When the founding fathers of this great country put together the Constitution and the Bill of Rights they had some very good reasons for the way they set things up. The Second Amendment was established to ensure the average citizen had a means of protection. A means to protect the country as well as a means to protect one’s self from the government. Remember, an unarmed population is one of slaves who serve at the will of the government because there is no means to resist tyranny. I know there are those who believe this could not happen but remember Nazi Germany. The Germans made the citizenry register firearms. The registration included a space for religion. Then the Germans took the weapons from the Jews and we all know what happened after that.
This post is not about the Second Amendment, I could go on about it all day. It is about the First which Guarantees Freedom of the Press. Why on Earth would a government provide for a free press. It is because those wonderful men had the wisdom to know that if a press is controlled by the government then the people of the nation were not truly free. They were only informed of what the government felt was important and any scandals, crimes, or actions the government wanted suppressed would be, and the people would be none the wiser. We have seen the effects of this recently. Russia and the former Soviet Union has always had a government controlled press. Look at the darkness their citizens live in. The outside world had more information about the school hostage horror than the people living in the country. In fact, a media worker because of what he had printed in the paper. It was not the information they wanted put out.
The founding fathers wanted the press (which includes broadcast media) to be separate from government so there would be no undue influence. Unfortunately, this is not the case anymore in the good ole’ USA. You see, the supposedly objective media has aligned itself with the democratic party. Now I know there are news organizations that are conservative but for the most part the media are quite liberal. They no longer report objectively. They no longer investigate to find the truth. They no longer have honor and integrity. Now they put out information that is inaccurate if it will further their agenda. They will allow suspicious memos to be broadcast without the scrutiny one would expect from a so called professional organization. They most definitely push the democratic liberal agenda to further that position and they most assuredly do not allow equal time or air equally opposing views. The news media has become a giant advertisement for the democratic party and this is why they are referred to as the media wing of the democratic party.
Dan Rather and CBS news has shown us that they will not let facts get in the way of a story if it will hurt the conservative candidate. At first, they were given the benefit of the doubt. It was assumed that they had been duped by someone clever. This benefit was given even though common opinion was that they should have been more thorough in examining these documents. Now that questions have been raised, CBS and the Dan have gone on the air to say they are sticking with their story that the documents are real. They did this based upon a partisan handwriting “expert” and a few anti-Bush people. They did this without independent forensic experts, without listening to the family of the now deceased military leader in question, and they did this despite the growing number of document experts who are stating publicly that these appear to be forgeries. It is unfortunate that the once mighty CBS has allowed its hatred of George Bush and the republican party to cloud their judgment.
They have chosen to bridge the gap of separation from the government and now embrace big brother to further their cause. It is strange that they will be the first ones to jump on any religious issue that appears to violate separation of Church and State (though most never do because the government is not establishing preference). They are the ones who will tell us that guns are evil and the Second Amendment means nothing and in the same breath they will tell us that Freedom of the press is based upon their definition of freedom and if they want to be in bed with the democratic party that is OK. They still believe the average citizen is not bright enough to make up his or her own mind. You need them to tell you what to think.
They are pathetic and we as citizens should not allow this to continue. I recommend we boycott any product that advertises on their network (or maybe just those that advertise on CBS news). Also, if you want to get involved, go here and send them an email telling them how disgusted you are with the way they do business.

Remember the Victims

Today marks the third anniversary of the attack on America that changed the course of history. We are a nation at war with an ideal that seeks to destroy us and our way of life. As you go about your business today, remember those whose lives were tragically taken by savages who have no regard for the sanctity of life. Keep the souls of the victims in your prayers and keep their families in your hearts. We will win as long as we never forget why we fight. God Bless the victims and their families and God bless America.

Dan Rather is a Pathetic Man

CBS’ 60 Minutes II aired a story this week that reported there were new memos obtained from the files of George Bush’s now deceased former commander. The day after the show aired the memos were scrutinized and many experts believed them to be forgeries. I will not bore you with why, you can read all about that at Blogs for Bush. When this scrutiny surfaced, Rather stated that if there was evidence to show them as fake he would go on the air and say so. During this controversy, Pat Caddell stated that if these are found to be false the presidential race is over.
Rather did the CBS Evening News today and stated the documents were real. He based this assertion on the testimony of one expert in document analysis and the words of a former member of Bush’s Guard Unit. He did not ask the widow or son of the commander, both of whom claimed that this would be out of character for the man and that he spoke highly of George Bush. He did not have other document experts on who could debate the veracity of the memos. He did not address the claims about how memos reportedly from the 70’s looked like they were produced with technology from well after that time period. No, Dan did not do any real investigative reporting like CBS use to be known for.
This was part of the agenda. Rather could not show in any way, shape, or form, that these were phony because it might mean curtains for Kerry. This would be contrary to everything he and the rest of the media wing of the democratic party stand for. What a pathetic man he has become. Of course, Rather has jumped the gun before and as usual he does not let facts get in the way of a story that pushes his agenda.
Yes, Dan Rather is pathetic and he has lost what little credibility he had.
